Carolinians are lucky – we can spend almost every month of the year outdoors. That might explain why we love a great outside set up. Bring on the decks, fireplaces, screen porches, pools, waterfalls and more! When we went searching for some of the best outdoor spaces in and around Charlotte, we turned to the experts at Savvy + Co. Real Estate. They pointed us to some sweet outdoor set ups to enjoy all year no matter your interest. Below are some of our faves.
Best place for a hot chocolate – 1118 Buchanan Street
This fully renovated home in Dilworth packs on the extras with four bedrooms, two baths, designer kitchen, wine cooler, Bosch dishwasher and more. But it doesn’t stop on the inside. The outdoor, double sided fireplace will be the place to be when the weather turns chilly and friends stop by for a Moscow mule. This outside set up has us in the mood for boots, jeans and sweaters.
Best outdoor dining experience – 821 Beauhaven Lane, Waxhaw
It is going to be difficult to leave the gorgeous interior of this amazing Waxhaw home with its stunning kitchen, two-story great room (with fireplace) and master retreat (with another fireplace). But when the fireflies and cool night air beckon you to eat your meal al fresco, you have lots of choices. Start with apps on the veranda, take your main course on the terrace and finish with dessert and coffee by the fireplace. We love a full course meal.
Best outdoor dance floor – 1817 Asheville Place
The large, two-story deck on this modern Dilworth home is perfect for a day of enjoying the sunshine then dancing the night away under the stars. You can show off your fine dance moves on the top or bottom deck or take turns wherever the rhythm takes you. Inside you’ll find lots of original character with modern touches and you are only steps from Freedom Park in Dilworth. We say music to our ears.
Best deck for entertaining – 1609 Providence Drive
Who says you can find modern home design in an upscale neighborhood? Not us. Proof is in the pictures of this masterpiece in Eastover. This home is always entertainment ready with a top of the line kitchen with hidden scullery, master retreat, guest suite with pool access, media room and much more. Of course the best place to be is in or around the stunning pool with an expansive deck, four-sided fireplace and grill. Suit is on, we are ready for a dip. Have you seen our cannonball?
Outdoor space for everyone – 5006 Stanbury Drive, Matthews
This home in Matthews offers the perfect outdoor “hang out spot” for every member of the crew. You will find resort-style amenities inside and out of this six-bedroom, brick home. No matter where you go outside, you have found the perfect place. Read on the screened porch, enjoy a pick up game in the private fenced yard or start the evening with friends at the stone fireplace near the waterfall. All this and a three-car garage. Even the roadster will have the perfect spot!
Best outdoor area for a cookout – 504 Smokey Hollow Drive, Marvin
Your inner chef will be ready for the next cookout in this stately Marvin home. The beautiful (and functional) chef’s kitchen opens up to a covered terrace porch with outdoor fireplace and built in grill. Now you can cook up your faves and enjoy the fresh air and friends at the same time. Plus with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, everyone can settle in for the weekend. We like our burgers medium with cheese please.
All these homes make us want to linger outside a little longer. The best part? They are available and ready for you. For more information, contact a Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent today. We will be outside on the patio.
